The Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems, State Emergency Medical Advisory Committee (SEMAC) and State EMS Council (SEMSCO) have approved 12-lead ECG acquisition and transmission for EMTs and AEMTs.

The Western Regional Emergency Medical Advisory Committee (WREMAC) is responsible for approving participation in this program for services within the 8 WNY counties. As such, a WREMAC policy has been developed and approved to provide guidance on the implementation of this program.

Interested services should review both policies (NYS and WREMAC) with their Medical Director to determine feasibility of program implementation. PARTICIPATION IS OPTIONAL and NOT REQUIRED.
